The Rose of Red Charlyn is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Queen Charlyn I with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.637 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A robust private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Red Charlyn, only toddlers and the elderly watch television before 23:00, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Charlyn's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Rose, and its currency is the Red.

Red Charlyn is ranked 5th in Monty Pythons Flying Circus and 59,017th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
